So, is that a V-twin, or the V4 from the Vmax?

It's the engine from the cruiser Dragstar 1100 (v-star there?)
60hp or so, in a proper chassis.


Replaced (more or less) by the MT01 years ago.

Is it within the scope of this thread to say, "The one I bought yesterday"?

I did post about it a while back, and finally succumbed to my passion yesterday.

Headed to its new home:

For me it has to be a 91-95 BMW R1000GS and a GS/PD would be even better. It will be my go anywhere bike, still reliable enough to do miles on the pavement, and do backwood roads when it has to. No ABS, or other electronic BS to worry about. But that is just my opinion

I tend to agree. I like the Hammarhead Jackpine Scrambler a lot, and I think this Ural looks pretty cool too. But, IMO, a bike like the Ural, while it's fine to look cool and spartan like that, I still think it should have some practical utility. I mean it isn't exactly going to set the world on fire with it's sporting prowess, now it is?

But, seriously, while the aluminum fenders look good and I like the recessed light in the rear, I still would prefer some sort of parcel rack on the back. You know, just a place to strap a small tail bag or maybe mount a box of some sort. Perhaps something could be added to the subframe to hoover over the rear fender but I wouldn't want a load on the aluminum fender itself.

Other than that, I like it.

Not enough to pay James Loughead's price for a dressed up Ural... Although it does give ideas for a nice project bike, doesn't it?

Been looking around a lot lately and I cannot make up my mind on which bike I will be buying this summer. It is so frustrating to me because I am usually decisive and quick to make an informed decision. I am completely stuck between an FX6R and the Ninja 650 and cannot choose which one. If I were to walk into a dealership to buy today it would be a toss up decision.

I must be mad. Even earlier models with bendy frames cost the earth.

I will say that on my recent cross country, by far, the majority of bikes I saw out doing miles were H-Ds; only a couple of 'Wings and a scattering of Beemers.

Had one. Beautiful bike. Very comfortable on the road. All the raw visceral performance of a 4 cyl minivan.

Lots of people love them so I'm obviously the odd one here. Just get ready to double the price if you want to make one as fast as a 3 generation old 600cc sport bike. IMHO of course.
